. after eisenhower was elected president in november of 1952, he immediately took off to play golf in augusta, and let clay and brownell turn -- turned the selection of his cabinet to clay and brownell, because he knew these people and recognized their talent and their ability and he understood they no. knew more about who should be in the cabinet perhaps than he did because he had been in nato for the previous here to years. so eisenhower was a superb judge of talent and learned that through his military career. >> i would say amplifying that, that is probably his most important political contribution as president. dwight eisenhower was a republican and proud of being a republican, and he believed in limited government but he was governing in a democratic era. he was governing in the fdr era, so what the eisenhower administration does politically, it applies the brakes to overreaching and ratifies and in fact makes bipartisan many policies of the new deal, but applies the brakes on others, but it's not an aggressive administration presenting a republican blueprint and driving for

. something unprecedented has happened in the u.s. department of justice. when president obama was elected in 2008 and organized the department of justice in 2009, he created the most politicized part of justice we had at least since the nixon administration if not before hand. and this isn't just opinion. it's a sixpack. think about this for a second. the department of justice is an entity that is the signed to interpret and enforce the law. when president obama appointed the attorney general he appointed eric holder who had been the campaign chairman and anti-campaign bumbler a large dollar fundraiser for his election and for other senior fr spots at the department of justice also occupied by campaign bumbler's. that is unprecedented in american history. and during the last four years what you've seen in the department of justice is a centrally enforce the law in such a way as to where they go after the political opponents of the president and they lay off the political friends and supporters of the president. it's a centrally using the department of justice like the brick for this week

that the white house said. nancy pelosi and harry reid and virtually every elected democrat who was pushing this law. it really is interesting. because when zeke emanuel is talking about maybe having to pay more for the privilege of keeping the doctor you were promised you could, that's on top of the increased premiums that many people are experiencing. and the increased out of pocket costs like huge new deductibles under many of these obama care plans. for them to try to now go back and say no one promised lower premiums? they're free to make that argument. the american people are free to laugh in their faces. because they said it repeatedly. we remember that. there's videotape of this. >> not only now do we have potential broken promises, but now we have privacy, more privacy issues as well. let's go out to california where the health exchange there apparently in some sort of a pilot program shared consumer contact information with insurance agents. in other words, maybe sold their private information even when they had not actually purchased a plan. so, guy, let's just assume that you we

, facilitating the first democratic elections and becoming first democratically elected president, first black president as well. you mentioned the 91 heads of state coming, truly is stunning when you look at not only barack obama, but a number of former presidents, george w. bush, jimmy carter and bill clinton as you mentioned. let's not forget the rest of the world is interested, prince kar charles on his way, the brazilian president and french president, u.n. secretary-general and more. as a way of facilitating this massive logistical challenge the government deployed some 11,000 troops to make sure as the interest builds it's on the fourth of the tenth day of mourning people are safe and there are no snags having so many vips here in the country. tomorrow's event, the tuesday memorial service which possibly could be attended by the u.s. president will be the first formal event, followed by nelson mandela's lying in-state at the union building in pretoria wednesday through friday. significant, john, because it was 20 years ago he was sworn in as president at that location. so a euphoric wee
. but getting back to president obama, it's almost a full year, jon, into his re-election and you've been talking about how difficult his presidency has been, specifically over the past year. if you compare it to recent presidents before him, their approval rating at this very same time, president clinton and reagan both doing far better than president obama at this time. george w. bush was slightly lower at 37%. but this is the same president who it seemed could do no wrong when he was re-elected. ari often reminds me that in politics things can move very slow and they can also move very fast. >> only ari knows that? oh. >> and former white house adviser spoke to this on this week last week wanting it to move quickly. let's take a listen. >> people trust this president. i think there's been numbers all over the place. i'm confident in a few months from now those trust numbers are going to come up. i think his approval number will come up. >> that's obviously what every democrat wants. jon, it seems like this is a year the administration is wanting to put behind them very quickly. >> yeah
, my god, that is the title. elected up on the amazon and of the various book catalogs i could find. no one is ever used the title. such an obvious title it also is the title betty essentially gives me into a lot of trouble. i find a very good way of bringing yourself to enter for taking this of town a bigger to is to look and amazon one star reviews. one star reviews, when they say, this is the most boring book and never read in my life. there is 11 star review at the moment from a woman he says, i am an unabashed militant feminist and and so appalled by the fact is called the men who united the rates. so i get no one star of you without even being read. but her view is one that i anticipated. why is it all made? the fact is, the reality is that in the physical united states of america it has been the business, almost entirely, man. there's only one woman who appears in the story, and that is sacajawea analysts in kaj saga. otherwise i'm afraid to say women play and sillery rules. in other an important role and other aspects of america, but not in the physical union of the nation.
to the election of 2014 with the controversy and difficulty over the rollout of the affordable care act and i cannot imagine they want to open themselves up to the you vulnerability to the potential shutdown. >> recently, we talked about and we heard our own dana bash in her reporting show that the gop is instructing one another on how to, you know, woo women voters and how to talk to women leaders, et cetera. at the same time, is there a feeling that democrats are taking women voters for granted? >>. >> well, you know, i look at this as sort of within the context of the broader reality that we face. house republicans have largely barricaded themselves into homogenously conservative districts and 80% of them are more white than the national average. they tend to be leaning very much to the right and that basically allows them to pursue a politics that allows them to keep the house and does nothing to deal with the broader challenges in the electorate that have prevented them from wing the popular vote in five of the last six elections. questions about insensitivity to women parallel the same
at the polling in 2008 about health care when the president was running for election the first time, it was clearly defined for voters or especially swing voters as an economic issue. this is not separate from pocketbook issues, this is right on point. that's why given where we are at with a still struggling economy for many people, health care does fit into these pocketbook issues. when republicans talk about you've got your free choice of doctors, for most people there isn't an actual free choice, because the cost of going to any doctor, any hospital you want is prohibitive. those are those out of network costs that make it very, very difficult for anyone to support this free choice that supposedly is part of this system. so people understand that very well. what they don't understand is what the president is proposing and how these costs will come down if they take part in these exchanges or the coverage they get will be better through their employer. >> has the democratic side been outmaneuvered on this, outmarketed on this so far, rick? >> well, they labor under the disadvantag
election and also the recent virginia governor's election and why at least it was reported it did have an effect on women voters. >> host: what's your opinion first before we hear from dr. sommers? >> caller: my opinion, it was almost like preaching to the choir, and the way it was reported and may have seemed to be emphasized by those who believed it anyway. but in the virginia governor's election, i lived in maryland, it did seem to have an effect at least on those going to the polls, the women going to the polls. >> host: thank you, sir. >> guest: yes. the war on women theme was very effective, and what i think about that is, first of all, i mean, democrats have been far better at listening to women, being informed by various women's centers that they, with whom they correspond be, and they got their message, and they fine-tuned that message for different age groups. it was fairly clear, for example, in the last presidential campaign that the republicans did not do that. and i think that for many conservatives as i said before, there are all these women's groups that are supported.

forward as the first black representative in that democratically elected government. in that way, they do have a great deal in common. you do see a very nervous and frightened group of white south africans wondering exactly what his presidency meant for them. and in some ways, you saw the same thing when mr. obama was on the verge of being elected. one other thing they have in common, we talk about mr. mandela serving 27 years in prison but we don't necessarily talk about why and what were the core issues there. they were dedicated to the premise of one person, one vote. so without that 1965 voting rights act, which is a direct product of the civil rights movement, mr. obama's presidency does not exist. they're bound together by that same issue and the activism that was required in order to make -- >> that's a good point. >> in addition to the comparisons between the two of them, which is important, i think the other remarkable thing is the thread of liberty that connects them across space and time. the abolitionist improvement inspired thorough who inspired gandhi who inspired mandela. i

the country. and in new york, new york city incoming mayor, mayor elect bill de blasio has made what could be his most important appointment. he's named bill bratton to be his police commissioner, a return to the post for bratton, nypd in the '90s. credit i had with crime fighting techniques that made new york the safest big city. led police force from 2002 to 2009. most recently helped in coverage of major breaking news as a major contributor. de blasio campaigned against controversial stop and frisk program. at this morning's announcement he promised change will come with the new nypd leadership. >> bill bratton knows when it comes to stop and frisk it has to be used with respect. it has to be used properly. the idea here is to have real reform to move to respond to deep, deep needs all over the city. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ fethere's bigcer ] and there's bombshell big. introducing bombshell volume. an enormous breakthrough in mascara for bombshell lashes. new bombshell volume from covergirl. it's a very big deal. before using her new bank of america credit card, which rewards her fo
when he was elected, brought na office. charlie rangel thought he would have access to the white house as chairman of the house ways and means committee. he didn't get access. >> and who did? >> al sharpton. that's who they went with for their community outreach. they went with al sharpton over charlie rangel. charlie rangel has been pretty honest about the failures of obama care. the real difference is style. charlie rangel likes other people. he is a warm person. spend an afternoon with charlie rangel. he exsuds an affection for other human beings. that is wholly absent from president obama. name five people close to him? they don't exist. you can name 500 for charlie rangel. >> remember the picture of him on the beach in the dominican republic. he evaded taxes on the cottage. the president didn't take to his side and also you remember the $30,000 plate funt raising event that went on in harlem, which is the district of charlie rangel. he wasn't invited. >> but you can have a conversation with charlie rangel. charlie rangel is a politician. he understands compromise. two people comin
? this is what speaker boehner said last week. >> the american people work hard and they expect their elected representatives to do the same. today the house has passed nearly 150 bills in congress that united states senate has failed to act on. >> so that's a bit of the blame game. we looked at those 1 a bills and it turns out that nearly a third of them went after obama care which of course is a nonstarter with democrats and on the other hand, senate has passed some bills like immigration reform that have crawled to a halt in the house. now congress has passed some major legislation. things like the violence against women act. overall, what is going on here is divided government with sharply divided politics. it means all of these folks up here have one major accomplishment they share. this is the least productive congress in modern history. back to you. >> all right, lisa dejourdan. thank you. >>> coming up, the focus of our debate for you with the political panel. can lawmakers stop playing the blame game long enough to get a little bit of work done? panelists will break it down. >> and o
